* [PATCH] fs: jffs2: fix error when reading blocks with offset

This bug resulted in a panic when trying to read a file partially with
an offset, e.g. when starting Linux. In such a case a header is loaded
by a separate call of jffs2_read(), which then copies only the first n
bytes out of the respective block.
When the remaining data of the block is then subsequently going to to be
read the system deviates in its behaviour from that under Linux by not
calling jffs2_read_inode_range() in a 4k-alignment, but with an offset.

jffs2_read_inode_range() originates from the Linux jffs2 driver. When
being called with an offset it still reads 4096 bytes of data and
eventually returns fragments of two consecutive blocks. jffs2_read()
then reads this result whilst again applying the offset, therefore
returning faulty data.

We fix that problem by calling jffs2_get_block() without an offset and
therefore reading the whole block. The offset is then applied when we
actually perform memcpy with the returned buffer. This fix might also
increase the performance since the respective block is likely to be
cached from the previous call.

Newly added stray space at end of line.

Apart from that:

This should be JFFS2_BLOCK_SIZE, right?
